MISSION & VISION
The Adams Theater is under development to become an inclusive, accessible, and interdisciplinary arts and performance venue in Western Massachusetts. Its mission is to cultivate creative partnerships, elevate arts accessibility in small towns, and produce cultural exchange.
> The Adams Theater plays a leadership role in revitalizing downtown Adams, MA.
Built in 1937 to replace the burned-down Atlas Theater in downtown Adams, The Adams Theater was a cultural anchor that connected generations of local residents until its closure as a movie theater in 1967. Adams Theater LLC was formed in March 2021 with the goal of reviving the 12,443 sqft theater for year-round programs in multi-disciplinary arts and activating downtown.
> The Adams Theater collaborates with cross-disciplinary artists on community-engaging works.
The Adams Theater expands local cultural offerings through partnerships with regional and visiting artists. It is a physical and intellectual platform where cross-disciplinary thinkers and creators collaborate.
> The Adams Theater brings diverse, inclusive, and accessible performances to local families & visitors.
The Adams Theater is creating a versatile new auditorium that can host rehearsals, workshops, performances, and events. It focuses on accessibility to all demographics and promotes dialogues between different user groups.
